Anti-Covid19 restriction riots across the country sparked by football hooligans.




Police in Amsterdam used water cannon to disperse protesters demonstrating against Covid-19 restrictions while in the southern city of Eindhoven cars were burnt and shops smashed in riots against the country's lock-down measures. Riot police on horseback attempted to clear the demonstrators in both cities where hundreds of people were arrested. A nighttime curfew went into effect on Saturday in a bid to rein in the coronavirus. Parliament voted narrowly last week to approve the curfew, swayed by assertions that an English variant is about to cause a new surge in cases

So cliffs on what all is going on? Are cases running wild there or something? Why the curfew? And yes, I'm lazy.

The Netherlands will impose a curfew on its citizens for the first time, beginning Saturday, in an attempt to halt the rapid spread of a coronavirus variant.

The parliament agreed to the measure — the most severe so far — after much heated debate.

Residents will be housebound between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m.

The new rule comes on top of a lockdown that's been in place since mid-December. Non-essential businesses, schools and restaurants are closed and strict contact restrictions are in place until February 9.

In addition, there is now a flight ban from the UK, South Africa, and South America, where the variants have been widely reported.

Although I did get a good chuckle at that chick getting blasted with the water cannon, so thank you for that.

Most of Europe worried about the new COVID strain so its a balancing act. Also the fact that Netherlands has never had a curfew pissing people off
